Hello everyone,

Has anyone else noticed that platformers are having a come back? Soo many titles for the wii u and so on. I know that is because indies are keen to making simpler games but even big companies are  participating  in this.

Heres some I noticed:

Donkey kong country series
Shovel knight
Kirbys epic yarn
Yoshis wooly world
Mario maker
Nes remix 1&2
New super mario bros
Ducktales remastered

Being as fami/nes will be my fav system. Theres so great feature titles and current games that really breathe life into an old genre. Im thoroughly enjoying them as well.

Nice.  Cheesy Thanks for informing.

I don't know anything about modern stuff but this should be good for us old schoolers too.

I saw a video of some recent platforming Duck Tales game though, and while it looked nice, somehow I felt that it feels more awesome to play a game I know has been played and enjoyed some 20+ years ago even if it is technically inferior. But other people only play the newest stuff , so for each their own.

Selling  Japanese games in Sweden since 2011 (as "japanspel").

I'm glad platformers are back. I love that genre and it's a reason why I got a Wii U.

I'm still waiting for Duck Tales to come out in Japan, though. *cough*damn region lock*cough*
Maybe I should just get it for PC.

For once people having the Japanese system is missing out instead of the other way around like it usually is.

2D platform games are one of the most basic and common genres in video game history so it shouldn't be forgotten. For portable consoles 2D games (including platform games) never really disappeared. I think they made a comeback already when Game Boy Advance became super popular. But now when portable consoles have become so powerful, more 3D games are coming out for them, so I'm glad they made a comeback for home consoles as well.
